Every book you read gives you the chance to win a fabulous prize of your choice. ALL books count. Come to the Information Desk to pick up/ submit reader entry forms and register for activities. Your first entry earns you a giant chocolate chip cookie courtesy of Vinny’s Deli! Each teen who attends a program over the summer will be entered to win the grand prize of a Sphero robotic ball. Open to all entering grades 6-12.

Minecraft Main Street Summer Contest
Minecraft Main Street logoWe’ve created the Wallingford Public Library on our Minecraft Server! Now you can replicate other buildings in town, or build something totally unique along Wallingford’s Minecraft Main Street.

Sign up at the Information Desk to gain a claim along our Minecraft Main Street. If you need some help getting started you can come meet with our Minecraft expert librarians on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:00 p.m. throughout July and August.

All of the completed buildings will be permanently featured on the LION Minecraft Server. All participants will vote on the best construction with the creator taking home a cool Minecraft inspired prize.

Open to all teens entering grades 6-12.
